Just coming back to this website makes me homesick for New Orleans. If you visit this great city, please do this tour first! We did and it really gave us a perspective of the town and the best spots to visit. The tour was great, as was the driver, who did a great job of showing us points of interest... More

Whenever I visit a city for the first time, I always do a bus tour, usually the hop-on, hop-off kind. I had planned on doing one of those for our first trip to NOLA, but after looking into things, I realized I wanted something that would go a bit further afield than the double-decker ones. I didn't care about hopping... More

We really only had one full day in New Orleans and wanted to get a real taste of New Orleans. Booking the 1st tour in the morning 9am was perfect. Our Driver called before picking us up.That was a good thing because we went to Mothers for breakfast and were not at the hotel. Saved us the walk back :)... More

Took tour December 2014 with Greg T. Prior to purchasing through Groupon, I second-guessed my decision as this was our 2nd visit to NOLA and thought we'd seen it all (French Quarter, Cemeteries, Plantations). To start, our tour guide Greg informed us that he was not the usual tour guide and I thought, "Oh no, we're going to be cheated... More

The tour was a good overview of the main areas of N.O., especially if you don't have a car to go around, since most of the things were not walking distance from the center. Darin was knowledgeable and fun to listen to, and I loved how he played music related to the music and pop cultural explanations he was giving.... More

Greg was our guide and he did an excellent job representing the company and New Orleans. This tour was about 3 hours and we got to see everything we wanted to see. A cemetery, the damaged houses, rebuilt areas, levy system and the beautiful southern homes. He even gave us a courtesy call so we knew when to expect a... More

While on a recent business trip to NO, we were looking for a city tour to fit into our busy schedule. I really wanted a walking tour, but the weather did not cooperate. The rainy weather led us to Southern Style tours for an afternoon 3-hour tour of the French quarter, garden district, 9th ward, and city park. Darren, our... More

Booking a city tour with this company was actually pleasant contrary to the tour itself. The tour guide was late picking us up at the hotel no apologies offered, the tour bus was completely full. The tour guide Darrin was clearly hassled and edgy. Not friendly and early on in the tour we could hear him on his cell having... More

This tour was time and money well spent! It took us to many highlights that a person new to New Orleans would enjoy seeing and hearing about. Darren was very informative and made the tour interesting and enjoyable. I enjoyed it very much!
